PUBLIC NOTICE OF REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS (RFP) FOR SERVICES FUNDED BY ALTERNATIVE EDUCATION INITIATIVE (AEI)

On Monday, January 31, 2022, on behalf of Mayor Wu and the City of Boston, the Mayor’s Office of Workforce Development (OWD) will issue an open and competitive Request for Proposals (RFP) for services under the Alternative Education Initiative (AEI). These funds support Boston’s high school diploma, HiSET, and GED granting alternative education programs for youth between the ages of 16-24. Connecting youth to alternative education programs, where they can take advantage of personalized, flexible, and small student-centered learning environments, provides a foundation for participating youth to increase their future employability and earning potential.

You can download the RFP online at https://owd.boston.gov/ beginning January 31, 2022. A bidder’s conference will be held virtually on Friday, February 18, 2022, at 12:00 pm. A registration link for the bidder’s conference will be posted online on the website https://owd.boston.gov//. Potential applicants are strongly encouraged to attend; accommodations for persons with disabilities available upon request. Please make all such requests at least 10 business days in advance. A Letter of Intent to Bid (provided in the RFP) is strongly recommended but not required. If submitting, the LOI is due by Monday, February 25, 2022. Proposals will be due Friday, March 25th, 2022, by 5:00 P.M.

The RFP seeks to identify programs for funding for fiscal year 2023, from July 1st, 2022 – June 30th, 2023. For further information, questions about the RFP, or requests for accommodations for persons with disabilities for the bidder’s conference, please contact Sarah Soroui, Workforce and Policy Manager, by email at: sarah.soroui@boston.gov
